Is what is seen by the public as parametric architecture actually parametric is this the future of architecture?
Jan Harmens, Leeds Metropolitan University
This investigation by Jan Harmens will analyse and define the definition for Parametricism. It will analyse and compare multiple parametric theories. Then using case studies to endeavour how parametricism has been used in the design process.
From this research definition of Parametricism will be assessed to discover whether what is being claimed as parametric architecture is actually parametric not not. This will allow for an avant-garde parametric manifesto to be defined, which will then be used to determine whether the use of this redefined parametricism is the future of architecture.
